Q:

Dear 100 Hour Board,

So I saw the display that the BYU bookstore has of the new Harry Potter book. My question: are the books on display the real ones, or just printed out covers on different books?

A: Dear Curious,

I'm sorry to disappoint you but the books in the display case are not the actual new books. They are copies of the Prisoner of Azkaban with Half Blood Prince dust covers. The prublisher sends out dust covers for advertising (like that display) ahead of time. The bookstore actually won't be getting the actual books in until a day or two before they are released.
